Children of the African Roots

Children of the African Roots where is the love you should have for each other? Where is the love?

Have you no shame mocking each other’s culture, or do you really believe you are different from one another?

Children of the African Roots scattered on different islands throughout the world; Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Santa Domingo, Guyana, Trinidad, just to name a few...

The only difference in each of you is the culture you are accustomed to.

The Roots of your history come from the shores of Mother Africa.

When I hear you down each other, have disdain for each other, taunt and make mockery of each other’s ways and customs my soul weeps.

Children of the African Roots Heritage denial have kept you divided.

Instead of embracing each other, you are leery of one another.

Diabolical planning that was set in motion centuries ago has kept your hands around each other’s throat.

Until the veil of ignorance is removed from your eyes many of you will never realize that you All are Children of the African Roots…

Love each other for you can’t make it without one another.
